Police informed the court that five or six persons, including the principal, parents, teachers and the suspect councillor were summoned to the police to investigate the complaint, and the councilor was released after being advised not to continue unlawful acts. The suspect had unzipped his trousers and exposed his genitals to the principal near the police cafeteria after being released.

The incident was videotaped by the teachers on their mobile phones, and the police said that they also received a complaint regarding the incident.

The suspect had been asked several times to report to the police to investigate the incident, but he had avoided the police and yesterday (27) the suspect was arrested after surrendering to the police.

Police informed the court that the mobile phones of the teachers have been forwarded to the Computer Division of the Criminal Investigation Department to obtain a report.
